The Thain family had a mad moment when they decided to buy a vineyard in 2004, but haven’t looked back. Established in 1994 by Bill and Lyn Wallace, Chepstowe Vineyard has become a passion for Matt Thain, equalled by his appreciation and respect for the land–the rich grey loam that nurtures and adds character to the fruit.
The Vineyard has survived fire and drought. In 2013, the Carngham bushfire ripped through the district, but despite the destruction of vegetation, fencing and trellising, the vines still managed to hang in and survive. New irrigation and trellising means Chepstowe is still producing bottles for your treasured Wine Time.
Winemaker Alex Byrne (Byrne Wines and Noisy Ritual Winery) brings twenty five years of experience as a winemaker, including vintages in Burgundy, France. Alex brings his knowledge and understanding of the complexities of producing cool climate wines to create something special with Chepstowe Vineyard wine
